About Skyler

My tutoring experience began when I was a sophomore in college studying chemistry and physics. I have tutored over 40 students in all aspects of Chemistry, Physics and Calculus and taught both semesters of general chemistry at OU. Many of my students are straight out of high school, but some of my favorite students have been those who came back to college for a career change.

As a graduate student in Biochemistry with a degree in Chemistry and minor in Physics, I am able to help with almost any college level science course. Many of my students have found it convenient to have the same tutor for several different subjects. It has been fun to watch them apply the skills we developed in one course to another.

I usually tutor groups or individuals for one to two hour sessions, often meeting weekly. I encourage groups to help each other before I meet them. That way everyone gets some free tutoring, and it helps us get the most for our time during the paid sessions with me. To save even more, be sure to call the WyzAnt phone number above to ask about purchasing a package deal.

In general, I'm available weekday evenings after 6 or by appointment on Saturdays. I answer texts and emails as soon as I can and will take calls if I'm available. This can come in handy for last minute questions before homework deadlines or exams.

I always look forward to meeting new students, and I hope you find the best help you can get.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 2

Algebra is one of the basic sciences that everything else can be built on. A thorough understanding of algebra opens the possibilities to the most fulfilling pursuits and careers. Business, Economics, Chemistry, Physics, even Music and the Arts can all be understood more fully thanks to algebra.

I teach algebra students the concepts and strategies that they need to know in order to use it efficiently in whichever field they choose. As always, I also pass along many general tips for studying and test taking as well. My goal is to prepare the student for class and for a life of learning.


Calculus is a powerful tool that can turn horribly complex algebra problems into effortless "plug and chug" type problems. It also has phenomenal physical applications. Every equation and process can be directly tied to applicable daily situations and tailored to any interests.

My approach is to find the students current skills and develop them further through guided practice. I encourage students to develop a "tool box" of the many concepts and processes that we learn. This toolbox can become a powerful help when the student works on homework.

People often say that math just isn't in their nature. I don't believe it! What I do believe is that they've just never had a math teacher who happened to be the same nature as they are. One on one tutoring allows me to focus on your individual interests, needs and learning style.

Email me to set up a free consultation where we can talk and see just how we can match your learning style and learning needs.


I have been tutoring general chemistry every semester since Fall 2010. I have had lots of practice explaining complex chemical principles in simple terms that students can understand. I make it a point to model for students the thought processes that should be applied in order to make intuitive connections between principles, equations and applications.

Many students have asked me to work with them through both semesters of general chemistry since they cover such different material. They found it very convenient to continue with the same tutor for chemistry and physics.


Most physics students have the most difficulty knowing where to start. My physics students learn a problem solving strategy that not only helps then know how to start the problem, but also keeps work organized and greatly helps them catch errors before declaring a final answer. This strategy is valid for any level of physics whether it's kinematics, electricity & magnetism or quantum mechanics. It has also been useful for engineers taking statics and dynamics classes.

I used this technique throughout many of my physics classes. Most notably, I scored top of my class and in the 93 percentile in the nation on a standardized quantum chemistry test because I used this method regularly throughout the semester.

Life Saver! — Skyler has been quite an asset to me during my college chemistry course. I never took chemistry in high school and I needed a lot of help with everything from just getting my homework done to studying for my exams. Skyler was always ready to help with whatever I needed. It was always obvious he really understood all the material, but he never overloaded me by explaining things in too much depth w ...
